This place is not for the faint of heart. We were here when it had been raining quite a bit so the water was very strong and quite difficult to traverse the path through the water (at times water up to our necks). Make sure you bring a very good waterproof pouch for your phone or camera or better yet... More

I was a little worried about doing this based on the reviews. I'm 54 with arthritis, but in good shape generally and a strong swimmer. You need to wear your bathing suit and something sturdy on your feet, that can get wet. This is not for anyone in poor health. The stairs to get there are incredibly long and steep.... More

I'm sure if we had actually seen the gorge, we would have given it a "5"! So here is my advice: CALL FIRST. Call the Restaurant de la Cascade at 0596 53 35 61 and make sure the gorge is open. We drove two hours on the Route de la Trace to get to the waterfall. We were so excited!... More

A "must do" in Martinique. Totally worth it!!! Beautiful foliage and amazing scenery. Guide was very helpful and knowledgeable. Make sure to pack your good grip water shoes, swimsuit and waterproof camera.

Like most other reviewers, I really enjoyed this visit. It is very beautiful and an excellent value for the price. We also paid 7€, but water shoes were not included. Wore my hiking shoes (which got completely wet), but was worth it, since the descent through the jungle was slippery, and walking on the stream could easily cause a twisted... More

Only a 15 min drive from Mount Pelee you can find Gorges des Falaise and can highly recommend it for those looking for a little adventure and arsenide rush. It is an activity for people of all ages but you do have to be able to have a reasonable level of fitness/agility for the trek down, through the ravine and... More

Staff are super friendly here, and you really get to do something special, it is very safe and fun, walking through water waist up. The guides are very kind - i wish it had gone on for longer!

This is an absolute must for anybody fond of nature. You walk 15 min down to a river, there a guide leads you thru a walk in the river up to a fantastic waterfall. The best is the actual walk/climb in the river, lots of fun (especially for our 7-year old son) as you have to climb ladders and jump... More

We came across Les Gorges after talking to some people we met after hiking Mt. Pelee. They had just come from Les Gorges de la Falaise and recommended it to us. We went there the next day. It was kinda hard to find - not great signage, so look closely.We arrived in the morning, around 10 o'clock. Missed the registration... More

I worked on a cruise ship for 6 months and saw tons of cool places and this was definitely one of the highlights! If you are prepared to descend (and later ascend) a million steps to get to the start of the hike you will love it! You will work your way up the river with water sometimes up to... More
